Step Up on Second, Inc. (Step Up) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to deliver compassionate support to people experiencing serious mental illness to help them recover, stabilize, and integrate into the community. Through dynamic partnerships, Step Up provides positive social and learning environments, vocational training, permanent supportive housing opportunities, and recovery services to empower individuals to cultivate lives of hope and dignity. Step Up exercises innovative leadership and advocacy to increase public understanding, support and acceptance of all people living with mental illness. Step Up envisions that all individuals, families, and communities affected by mental illness will have the opportunity to experience recovery and a sense of belonging, and that permanent supportive housing will be available to everyone who needs it.
Since 1984, Step Up has provided services in Santa Monica and the greater Los Angeles area, but because of Step Up’s reputation for ending homelessness not just managing it, Step Up has expanded to Riverside and Orange Counties, and this past year, was awarded a contract to help San Bernardino County end homelessness.

Step Up’s goal for the coming year is to house and support an additional 100 persons living on the streets of San Bernardino County. Step Up is honored and humbled to be in our nation’s largest geographical county helping to pull up those that need a hand most of all.

For over 30 years, Step Up has provided services including: life skills development, mental health, and physical health services, member-driven support programs run by staff and supported by peer advocates to assist individuals in their recovery process, such as identifying personal goals and building strategies to achieve them.
